Have a look at http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/entertainment/film/2490639.stm
which explains a little about the site. I agree it seems odd that they
should want to harvest names and addresses, (could be to do with legal
requirements for license to broadcast?) ,but I do think that once they've
ironed out the bugs the Pathe News website will be of great interest and
relevance to anyone with an interest in 20th century history.
So I would say it was posted in good faith, yes.
